Offering from Higgins:
Shifts in life may be stimulated by internal or external factors. For example, when a child reaches adolescence or a woman achieves menopause a change in hormones stimulates a shift in perception. Men have a similar hormonal shift in the same time frame that a woman achieves menopause that is less obvious but nonetheless stimulates the same sort of perceptual shift. These we define as internal shifts.
An external factor could look like the death of a loved one, a serious car accident or a divorce.
Humans are ever evolving beings: these shifts are desirable yet often perceived as undesirable. What you each must do is remind yourself that there is more going on unseen than seen and that all things are conspiring towards your greatest good and towards the highest spiritual evolution of mankind. With that in mind always move towards that which brings relief. Sort that out (the knowing which way to move) and life will flow seamlessly, experienced enthusiastically by each of you.
